Libraries as History: The 2013 Foxcroft Lecture

Ponder over the great cultural relic, the library

This event has finished

The State Library of Victoria will be asking the bold question, do we need libraries? In a fast-paced world we have access to so much information online, so what role do libraries now play? This lecture will explore these questions and more when David Pearson investigates the the lasting cultural value of libraries and books, tools, collections and artefacts. Bookings essential.
